LEGOLAND Florida Resort today announced an unprecedented slate of projects
that will deliver additional on-site accommodations, an immersive new theme
park land with a cutting-edge, interactive attraction, the first-ever expansion
of its water park, a new, action-packed “4D” theatrical attraction and an
all-new summertime event filled with fireworks and special entertainment,
giving guests even more reasons to play — and stay — at the place

LEGOLAND Beach Retreat

LEGOLAND Beach Retreat

NEW! LEGOLAND Beach Retreat – opening mid-2017

This whimsically themed vacation resort combines the fun of surf, sand and
sun with the creativity of LEGO® bricks on a picturesque site next to Lake
Dexter, adjacent to the theme park. Distinguished by a colorful LEGO
lighthouse, the village-style, lakefront resort will feature 83 single-story
duplex units, offering 166 separate accommodations that sleep up to five.

Designed with the same combination of imagination and kid-centric detail
that made the 10-month-old LEGOLAND Hotel an immediate hit, the all-new
LEGOLAND Beach Retreat offers a great way for larger families and friends to
vacation together. Amenities will include a themed pool, a sandy play area, a
buffet-style restaurant and complimentary transportation to and from the theme



NEW! LEGO NINJAGO World – opening early 2017

Inspired by the popular series of LEGO building sets and the long-running TV
show “LEGO NINJAGO: Masters of Spinjitzu,” this all-new, fully immersive theme
park land invites guests to step into a magical, martial arts kingdom where
they’ll experience a first-of-its-kind attraction that blends eye-popping, 3D
computer animation, “4D” atmospheric effects and groundbreaking technology by
Montreal-based Triotech.

On LEGO NINJAGO The Ride, up to four guests per vehicle blast animated
fireballs, lightning, shockwaves and ice using nothing more than their hands as
they travel through dojos mastering their skills before teaming up to defeat a
powerful villain. Riders collect points and scores are displayed when each
quest is complete. The thrilling attraction is the epicenter of a new area
featuring multiple hands-on, interactive experiences that will hone kids’
physical skills like NINJAGO heroes Kai, Jay, Cole, Zane and Nya, before their
ultimate test on LEGO NINJAGO The Ride.

LEGOLAND Water Park Build-A-Boat

LEGOLAND Water Park Build-A-Boat

NEW! Creative Cove featuring Build-A-Boat – now open

A fun expansion area at LEGOLAND Water Park adds a brand-new attraction, Build-A-Boat, where kids can create and race LEGO watercraft through fast-flowing rivers alongside cheering crowds in a setting inspired by the popular LEGO City Coast Guard sets. Nearby, the existing Imagination Station lets little ones build and play with colorful DUPLO® bricks in a water-filled activity center. Additional dining offerings, increased seating capacity and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the entire water park round out the all-new offerings for 2016.

LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS 4D The Book of Creativity

LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS 4D The Book of Creativity

NEW! “LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS 4D: The Book of Creativity” – opening May 26, 2016

Set in the futuristic Kingdom of Knighton, this all-new theatrical attraction pits five young knights against the evil Jestro and his sidekick, the Book of Monsters, in a battle for control of a rare book of magic that gives its owner tremendous power. Based on the new LEGO series of building sets and the just-launched TV show, the 12½-minute, immersive experience combines 3D computer animation with “4D,” real-world effects that bring the high-tech action bursting off the screen and into the audience.

Elsewhere in the theme park, kids will discover six exclusive shields that unlock unique NEXO Powers within the LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS: Merlok 2.0 mobile app for iOS and Android devices.

NEW! LEGOLAND Night Lights – Summer 2016

The resort will debut its latest all-new event in June, a celebration of
summertime fun featuring extended park hours, meet-and-greet opportunities with
favorite LEGO characters, exclusive opportunities to build alongside LEGO
Master Model Builders and a spectacular, brick-tacular NINJAGO
fireworks display that will light the night above Lake Eloise with brilliant
colors and triumphant music. Held exclusively at LEGOLAND Florida Resort, the
party is included with park admission and will take place every Saturday and
Sunday from June 18 to July 31.

The exciting new projects represent the largest period of growth in the nearly 4½-year history of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, a rapid trajectory of expansions that has included LEGOLAND Water Park (May 2012), LEGO STAR WARS™ Miniland Model Display (November 2012), LEGO World of Chima™ (July 2013), DUPLO Valley (May 2014), LEGOLAND Hotel (May 2015), Heartlake City (June 2015), and phased restorations of the historic Cypress Gardens botanical wonderland, which recently celebrated its 80th anniversary.
